I've finally been in the mood to draw again lately. I remember when I first started Flapper Doodle 4 years ago (FOUR YEARS AGO!) I used to draw a new illustration almost every day. I guess it's a good thing I lost steam though or else I'd have almost 1500 drawings in my shop now! ;)
The first drawing was inspired by a photo of one of my favorite bloggers, Solanah from Vixen Vintage. You can view her original post here!
This drawing was loosely inspired by a photo of Fay Wray (you can view the original here) which also inspired the title of the piece, "It was beauty killed the beast."from her most famous movie, King Kong. I love the idea of using poses from vintage stills and photos and then kind of flapper-doodle-izing them.
Both prints are available in 4x6 and 8x10 in my etsy shop here!
I'm giving away free mini-paper doll kits with etsy orders this week! Just mention "paper dolls" in the message to seller at checkout (it's not a coupon code, just leave it in the notes section on etsy) and you'll receive a kit with your purchase! No minimum orders, as long as it's something I can mail (ie. no digital downloads) you can get a kit! :) US customers can also get free shipping on orders of $10 or more with code 10FREESHIP.
This listing includes PDF embroidery patterns with 10 different hairstyles. Each style is included with the phrase "Will you be my Bridesmaid?" as well as "Will you be my Maid of Honor?"
Also I've been meaning to offer these since I started Flapper Doodle and (almost 4 years later.. yikes) I finally got around to it. Make-your-own-note-card sets are now available in kraft card stock and ivory card stock. For $10 you get five cards with your choice of any illustrations in my shop. They're available on etsy here.
